Halloween Deprived

“Can’t we just give them candy?” I would ask. My mother would shake her head. Then she would say, “No. If we give them candy, those kids will keep coming here every year. We don’t celebrate Halloween, so when they knock, don’t open the door.”

Writing A Song (With Imagery)!

…I used Lorde’s song, Writer in The Dark (co-written and co-produced by Lorde & Jack Antonoff) as a sampler while song-writing.
